I have no oil getting to the top end. getting 20lbs at the filter.oil flows back to the tank but looks bubbly. with the push rod covers off oil splatters all over at the lifters. all push rods and rocker arm ports are not blocked however with the rocker covers off no oil shows on top. I let it run between 3 to 10 minutes still nothing.

Initially release any clips by squeezing with a pliers and pushing back along the line. Lines can be prised off using a snipe nose pliers or flat blade screw driver, pushing on the edge of the line. Don't pull the lines which can stretch them.Two fuel lines leave the tank of a two stroke engine. The primer bulb sucks gas from the tank via the line with the filter on the end, gas returns to the tank via the other line without the filter. When you replace a line, to check whether they haven't been mixed up, fill the tank but leave the line without the filter above the level of the gas. When you push the primer bulb, gas should eventually squirt out the line without the filter. If the lines are mixed up, air bubbles will flow out of the filter and no gas out the other line.
For a pictorial guide and more info on troubleshooting 2-stroke engines and carburetors, see my guide here:
On SOME of the Harleys with the oil tank mounted below the transmission, the oil feed line needs to be "bled", so the oil pump doesn\'t "cavitate" (suck air). Unhook the oil feed (not return) line at the engine, and allow some oil to flow out (removing oil fill cap helps) to get air out of line. Replace line and try again. Also, if you didn\'t pour some oil into the filter prior to installing it, it will take a little time for it to fill (AFTER the oil runs through the engine)
remove the one end of the hose that is from the rod end of the clylinder.
two ways you can go here. either: detach the one end of the hose that is attached to directional control valve and leads to the cap end of the cylinder and place the end in a pale then retract the cylinder by physically forcing the rod back in and all the oil will drain out of the cap end into the pale and the rod end will fill with air.
or u could hold the directional valve in the position to let the oil flow back to tank while physically forcing the rod back in. the oil in the cap end will drain to tank and rod end will fill with air.
drain the tank of oil.
if you wanted to be extra thurough remove the remaining lines and drain the oil out of them.
reattach all lines.
replace oil filters/strainers. should be one on the return line going to tank. and one on the suction line before the pump. But there may not be a second filter.
fill tank with new oil.
extend the cylinder using the pump. allowing the air to bleed off the rod side. may chatter at bit while extending. if excessive chatter remove line end to allow the air in the rod side to bleed to atmosphere and continue till fully extended.
reattach line. probably a good idea to run a couple cycles.
and repeat the entire process for a thurogh flushing.
! note: dont be dissconnecting lines with pressure in them or while the system is running.
! note: be sure to have enough oil in the tank so the pump is not sucking air. this will eventually cause unrepairable damage to pump if sucking air for too long.
i just wrote this off the top of my head and ive only worked on industrial hyraulic systems and never on a log splitter before so just keep that in mind. hope it helps
It may be you have a leak in your head gasket and the coolant is burning up in your engine. Does your oil look milky at all and is your exhaust smoke white at all. It may be a small enough leak that it burns off enough without any symptoms other than you having to fill up the tank..
Now you can test if you have a leak in your head gasket. If your pressure cap is good, start the car cold with radiator cap off, (and radiator full),
it will put up steady bubbles, the worse it is leaking the worse the
bubbles will "flow"!
An occasional "small bubble" is not a problem, as it will push out air
trapped inside engine till it has heated up and thermostat
Another cause could be if you had the thermostat changed and it was inverted by accident.
The "pellet" end (one with the little "wart" around the shaft from top
to bottom), goes down in water (from engine)
Yes, oil in the antifreeze typically comes from a blown head gasket. To verify, start the truck and watch the overflow tank you should see what looks like a back flow or bubbles. By the time the truck get to normal temp, it'll be obvious.
